Hi Foilman,

There seems to be a small login problem when more than one person logs in through the same proxy server (I'm guessing). OldBean and I are working in the same department at the same uni and whenever I finish one of the current weekly puzzels I end up in OldBean's kwontom loop home page, although my time is still recorded under my name. So far this has only been a shock when I glimpse OldBean's puzzel times before realising what's happend, but I'd hate for one of us to accidently do the puzzels under the wrong log in.

That's very strange, it certainly shouldn't matter that you're both using the same proxy server, you'd have to be sharing cookies for something like this to happen and I can't imagine that being the case! I'll see if I can figure out what's going on... hmmm...

Ok, I have a theory and I think I might have solved the issue. I reckon your proxy was caching the pages so although you were logged in as yourself, you were seeing a cached home page of scores which weren't yours. What I've done is added some "anti-caching" options to all pages on the site, which - theoretically - should sort it out... let me know if it happens again or if anything else a bit weird happens.
